2010 Giovanni Rosso Barolo La Serra
Garnet red in the glass, this wine is concentrated and bright. Violet and rose overtones dominate the nose, with black fruit characteristics, hints of coffee and liquorice int he background. A rich wine with flavors of black cherry, plum, dark fruit, coffee, liquorice and earthy, leathery overtones. More powerful than the Cerretta, showing more dense tannins and a typically precise, long Serralunga finish.
James Suckling: 92 Points
Ruby-stone, mineral and fresh-rose aroma. Layers of tannins, dark chocolate, black pepper and leather. Elegant, velvet-textured finish. Drink now, but better in 2015.
